Famed FOX commentator, Bill O’Reilly, is no stranger to controversy as his quips and comments have landed him atop many-a-headline over his career. However, his most recent jab at Congresswoman Maxine Waters (known well for her anti-President Donald Trump statements), has landed him in some serious hot water.
